Very good bug report.

I would lower the level of notification for "trivial: string" to a hint. 
It is nonsense to emit the same level of notification (warning) for 
dangerous code ("serious: integer") and valid code ("trivial: string").

Warnings are something to care about, the "trivial: string" case is not.
